What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
My genre is Alternative Pop with RnB and Rock influence.
Give us a little bio about you.
Liv Byrne is a 20-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer based in New York City. Originally from South Florida, Liv has been writing music since she was 11-years-old. She is heavily influenced by artists like Ariana Grande, Frank Ocean, Daniel Caesar, Role Model, Doja Cat, and Alina Baraz. Her unique voice, vulnerable lyrics, and simple yet deeply thought-out production is what makes Liv so special.
What made you go into music?
There was no specific thing that made me go into it. Growing up, music was always playing throughout my house and my family dissects songs with each other all the time. Although no one sang or really played instruments, music has always been a form of communication for my family.
Who are your influences?
Great music is what influences me. I love Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Daniel Caesar, Jeremy Zucker, and ROLE MODEL.
Are you signed?
I am not!
You are set to release new music, tell us more about your sound and what to expect?
Sure! My sound is more upcoming I’d say. As I was making it, I worked off what I was feeling so I called it experimental but when I show it to people my age they like it a lot so maybe it’s not experimental? I’ve shown it to a lot of people and it seems like the closer in age to me you are, the more you like it. My music is definitely more lyric and vocal based so the production is always there for support but doesn’t play the largest role. My upcoming single, ‘mad at you,’ is very pop with touches of pop-punk/pop-rock.
When can we expect the new music?
My single releases October 22nd!
Can you tell us who you are working with?
I wrote and produced ‘mad at you’ a few years ago but I always felt like something was missing so I called in my friend Eryck Bry to help me finish it. We added a few more sounds that made the song feel fuller and complete.
Will we see an EP or Album and if so, what can we expect from it?
Yes! I plan on releasing my album at the beginning of next year. It talks about that transitional stage of life from leaving high school and your home environment to going out in the world on your own.
What else can we expect in 2021?
You can expect a lot more vulnerable music. I’m not hiding/masking how I feel anymore.
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
Well, ideally I would love to be living my dream, accomplishing all of my wildest dreams of course! But realistically, it is hard to make 5-year plans in the entertainment industry. So with that I say five years from now I would love to look back on this time in my life and feel proud of the work I did.
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
I had a professor remind me of a Seneca quote last week that I’ve always really resonated with: “luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation.”
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
Five things seems like a lot. Everytime I go to a gig I just need my phone, the instrumental/backing track(s) I’m using, and water.
